Yes, because the web client I often must use, doesn't show the List-Id
field, nor does it allow to filter using the List-Id field, nor my local
client does.

I want to have a chance to differ the emails from this list from the rest.

While other email lists have a clearly, always visible subject prefix,
this list is the first without a subject prefix.
And the first, where the list members want to manage via mostly invisible
"meta" data.

Why not using the prefix? Is it really "cluttering"?
